of 100 on the f.d.a. shortage list. >> axelrod: jon, congress passed legislation last july giving the f.d.a. more authority to deal with cancer drug shortages. i'm wondering what's become of that. >> reporter: jim, that new law has made a big difference, and the key provision is the requirement that drug manufacturers let the f.d.a. know when there's an impending shortage. since that new law has passed, there has been a doubling of the notifications. the f.d.a. can increase imports from abroad and tell other manufacturers in the united states to step up production. so it's made a big difference. now, another provision in that law is that the f.d.a. set up a task force looking at other possible solutions to the drug shortage crisis, and they're required to submit that report to congress by this coming july. >> axelrod: dr. jon lapook, thank you. china now has the longest high- speed train line in the world. it runs 1,400 miles from beijing to the city of guangjo, about the distance from new york to miami. the chinese train can make the trip in eight hours. it would take amtrak 30 hours.
been delayed at laguardia airport now, -- we have julie martin with us. >> reporter: we are getting a break, we have seen snow and a bit of sleet, visibility is one of the big issues and we are down to about a mile or so. not the greatest situation, but one thing helping the flights and the pilots are the winds. the winds are not all that strong. so fortunately the flights have been able to come and go, but we are seeing the delays starting to mount a bit. overall here in new york and new jersey, we have seen 197 flights cancelled and hundreds of delays at the three airports but here at laguardia, not all that bad considering what we experienced a couple of days ago with the last system that came through cancelling thousands of flights and stranding hundreds of pass enerr js. so, at this point, it's a wait and see, we could get a bursts of snow coming through the tri-state area later this evening and the winds will continue to pick up. i expect travel conditions to worsen as the afternoon and night goes on. craig? >> julie martin, braving the elements, we appreciate it. thank you. s

. and then there are decisions made my leaders, some of which have changed the course of history, for better or for worse. july 4, 1776, the decision to declare independence. january, 1863, abraham's decision to emancipate all persons held as slaves. june 1941, adolf hitler's decision to invade the soviet union. august 1945, president truman's decision to use abatomic bomb against japan. tonight, we'll examine the process of making a tough decision. we'll hear about major decisions on an international stage. about corporate decisions to personal ones. from taking down the most wanted man in the world. >> the president said i'm going to go with my decision. write up the orders .. >> to giving up a dream career. >> it was a sense of lm unreality, i'm not really sure i know who i am. >> to uprooting a company culture. >> some people actually quit. >> to opening the door to a closed society. >> this is like a spy thriller. >> each of my guests have wrestled with a difficult choice. they'll take us through their deliberations, their fears and how they made their tough decisions. >> at 11:00 a.m. on may 1, 2011, two b
the right to own guns is more important. opinion was essentially divided in july after the deadly movie theater shootings in aurora, colorado. 47% said it was more important to protect gun ownership. 46% said it was more important to protect gun rights. a big part of the debate stems from the number of guns in this country. there are more than 297 million privately-owned firearms in the u.s. according to a congressional research service report. the gun industry here is thriving with profits doubling during the great recession. u.s. firearms remain one of the most successful industries in the world. stock prices of the two largest publicly traded firearm companies skyrocketed from the president's inauguration to the latest high. smith & wesson up over 260% and industry leader sturm, ruger and company up over 500%. just to give you an example here of comparison. you would have made less money if you bought a share of tech darling apple which had a lower gain than sturm, ruger & company, but you didn't have to buy stock to win. industry jobs commonly reward employees with a $140,000 salary
been worked out some time ago. august of the end of july the house-passed tax bill and senate over to the senate. there were free taken up an amended and take it back. that's the way things usually work. revenue bills must originate the house of representatives. we get to work six months ago. a work product six there and wait for the senate to take something up. here is what is troubling about all this. we will get through this this week however it turns out or next week, however turns out. you are right about the debt limit. that is going to recess well, and then just after that have an appropriations lapse. so the first three months of the year you have fiscal cliff, debt limit, and appropriations laps all staring the american people in the face. i get it that people are sick of this combat at the same time it is because we have such an nasa's spending problem is the reason why these things are occurring the way they are. tom: you heard the president come out and talk to the white house press corps. he talked about maintain a middle-class tax cuts. he did not define what that is
yet again. it hit the highest level since july. the vix is up 30% over the last month. >>> apple's tim cook is getting a 99% cut in compensation this year. cook will take home $4.2 million compared to 378 million bucks in 2011. apple made clear the decline has nothing to do with performance. cook's sky-high 2011 pay package was largely award of one million restricted shares of stock after he took the reins at apple as ceo. that money would come in handy in washington, wouldn't it? that is our top story. the senate convened today for emergency session to deal with the fiscal cliff. the house has announced plans to reconvene on sunday. both senate majority leader harry reid and senate minority leader mitch mcconnell spoke a short time ago and neither sounds hopeful of fiscal cliff deal will be made before the deadline. so at this point is there any chance the united states can avoid taking a fiscal cliff dive? joining me for more is republican senator john hoeven of north dakota. and very simply, sir, we appreciate you being here but is harry reid right? are we going off the cliff? >> we

that vote back on july 25th, the democratic bill is, quote, a revenue measure that didn't originate in the house so it's got no chance whatsoever of becoming law, end quote. that's what i said back on july 25th. the only reason we ever allowed that vote on that proposal is i said at that time was that we knew it didn't pass constitutional muster. and the democrats were really serious, they would proceed to a revenue bill that originated in the house as the constitution requires and as i called on them to do again last week. to repeat, the so-called nate bill is nothing more than a glorified sense of the senate resolution. so let's put that convenient talking point aside from here on out. last night i told the president we'd be happy to look at whatever he proposes but the truth is we're coming up against a hard deadline here and, as i said, this is a conversation we should have had months ago. and republicans aren't about to write a blank check or anything senate democrats put forward just because we find ourselves at the edge of the cliff. that wouldn't be fair to the american peop

fortunate to not know what rick rolling was, allow me to demonstrate. in july 2011, the white house tweeted the following. fiscal policy is important, but it can sometimes be dry. and then they pasted a link there for people to click on. when you click on the link to find out about this dry fiscal policies thing, this is happen had when you clicked on the link. ♪ >> there. you have been rick rolled. congratulations. a rick roll is an internet made you look prank. you promise somebody that they're going to see something cool and interesting new, and then they click on the link and get. this always this. it's not like any song, it's always this song. and this song is from 1987 from a man who i'm sure is very nice person who is named rick astley. but his name is rick, so it's rick rolled. this is an old online joke. it's weird and annoying, but it's annoying on purpose. you not only don't get to see the noteworthy thing that you were promised that you were interested enough in to click be, you also get this song stuck in your head, and it stay there's forever. it's the rick roll, okay? well,
to remove galstones and these are the most recent pictures only him taken in july by cnn at his 94th birthday party in 'tis home surrounded by his large family. but he looked bewildered and didn't smile. so different to the vigorous man who fought so hard, endured so much. other recent years, though, the former south african president has seemed frail and unsteady on his legs. public appearances became increasingly rare. just too much effort for a man in his 90s. those he did make, mandela sometimes dozed off during speeches and seemed confused. he's mostly spent his time at this home in the eastern cape. soothed by the slow pace of the rural rhythms in the hills near his boyhood village and it's unclear whelp and if he'll return back to his primary residence here. for now, though, south africans are just relieved that he's out of hospital. >> mandela, he's alive. >> i can see that. >> i'm worried about this. at least if he can manage to reach at least it, that would be grateful. >> reporter: a man who gave so much and who is still so deeply revered by anxious south africans. you jus
begin with a traffic stop back in july. >> i don't have marijuana. >> i don't smoke marijuana. >> gregg: a female officer was then called to the scene to perform a cavity search on both women. the officers say it was necessary because they saw the suspect throw what may have been marijuana cigarettes out of the car. women say they were molested, their rights were violated. was the search unconstitutional or did police really have probable cause here. joey jackson, vicky ziegler, former prosecutors. very sensitive subject. a lot depends on the videotape. i not sure you can discern critical issues? >> there is a lot we don't know certainly. when i looked at the video i saw some invasive procedures. it appeared that this female officer had her fingers in the backside of this woman. she went underneath her pants, underneath, we don't know if it was under her underwear, it appeared it was more than a frisk. more than a pat down allowed by the law. terry versus ohio you are allowed to pat down if you believe there is contraband but this was egregious. it was done on a public highway in front
they are going after hagel partly because of this moment on the floor in july of 2006. this was during israel and lebanon's war and this is chuck hagel pushing the u.s. to urge a cease-fire. take a look. >> how do we realistically believe that a continuation of this system attic destruction of an american friend, the country and the people of lebanon is going to enhance america's image and give us the trust and sustainability to maintain a peace effort in the middle east? the sickening slaughter on both sides, mr. president, must end and it must end now. >> president bush must call for an immediate cease-fire. this madness must stop. the united states will remain committed to defending israel. a relationship has been in israel is a special and historic one, but it need not and cannot be at the expense of our arab and muslim relationships. that is an irresponsible and dangerous false choice. >> what's so striking about that is that that war between israel and lebanon, which the american political establishment essentially supported unanimously as it wants to do in these sort of conflicts, was
each other] >> he got them a few months ago in july when he voted to raise taxes -- [talking over each other] >> we are heading into the midterm is. people have short-term memory is. when they see the vote with the fiscal cliff they will say wait a second, those thirteen democrats -- [talking over each other] >> 13 democrats in the same polling that all people do when they're ready for election and they have seen essentially voters overwhelmingly believe you have to raise taxes on what they consider [talking over each other] [talking over each other] >> that is not so according to the polls and these people are running for reelection. >> suppose we get higher taxes on people making $250,000 a year. i agree that is what is going to happen. that doesn't solve anything. it solves absolutely nothing. this is a spending problem. >> it is a revenue problem aad the spending problem. >> >> we are at pre [talking over each other] [talking over each other] >> under reagan it was 8.7. stuart: we have a fundamental political problem with our system here. how do we get out of this? will tell you wh
june and july? in the past, the nation has gone through some kind of panic attack expecting five dollars for a gallon of gas. >> i do not see five dollars at all next year. i do not even see four dollars. i expect $3.75 to be the height of the peak. what i expect is nothing will happen until the new year when both congress and the president come back. they enact new tax cuts. neither side is interested in any sort of significant spending cuts. liz: where do you see oil and gas prices in that scenario? >> well, in that scenario, i think oil prices could rise if we just had the tax cuts because the spending will continue unabated and the dollar will get weaker and commodity prices will get higher. liz: thank you. let's stay with oil. we will bring in our very own jeff flock. what are you watching out there? jeff: we were at the cme yesterday. talk about what the impact of the fiscal cliff has done to the oil market. take a look at oil prices today. since christmas, we are up about 3%. take a look at the volume. if you look at the volume of trading, and "wall street journal" was ont
song gets utus past the fiscal cliff. >> the last time this happened in july of 2011, the credit rating was downgraded. the government's, not mine, but i guess i live here. that could happen again, right? >> we have seen that the politics are raising the debt ceiling are quite difficult. in 2011 your right what standard & poors said is americans political problems appear to be severe enough that they can't take care of business. we'll see if we have the same trouble this time around. the thing to remember is that the real problem is not the debt limit it's the debt. if they get serious about a deal to take down some of the debt and stop the growth they can take care of the debt limit in the same process. gregg: when the government dominates the credit marketplace by absorbing all of those borrowed dollars, doesn't that steal those dollars away from american businesses that it would seem to me desperately need phepl t them to keep operating. >> it's called crowding out. that is implications for investment. it has implications for our ability to export. those dollars finance exports. very
jefferson seemed to have changing opinions on god. both he, though, and john adams died on july 4th, 50 years to the day of the declaration of independence. >> well, it is coincidence, but john quincy adams, who was president at the time, thought it was a sign of divine benevolence, that somehow the fathers would be gathered up, the apotheosis of adams and jefferson on the 50th anniversary in 1826. and it is a little -- i mean, if you wrote that in a novel, you know, you'd kick it back and say a little too -- they're guilding the lily unquestionably. but i think it was also the beginning of our first moment of kind of founder chic that, you know, they died -- i think at that point there was only one remaining signer alive. there were very few. and so the fact that they were gone was a kind of mythological almost benediction to what they worked so hard for. and i think -- i wonder sometimes whether john adams would ultimately be pleased that he had to share the headline or think, you know, dammit, jefferson did it again, you know, he stepped on my story. bush 41, who is giving his wife r
